A Journalist, writer and travel specialist, Gabriele works principally in Rome as Italy's Greenpeace Press Officer. However he regularly returns to his ancestral home amongst the beautiful olive groves in the foot hills of Mount Subasio, Assisi, where San Francis was born. 
From this passion for Umbria came his acclaimed book “Diario Umbro” (unfortunately only in italian!) - followed by many more books about nature and the environment, all written in this peaceful hilly region.
Besides his current work, Gabriele enjoys assisting groups in Umbria, to discover a region full of Roman and Medieval history and art, nature and good food. As a foodie, he's very keen to share with us the best cusine in the area!

Giulio Cuccioli: Lofoten Guide

Our Associated Guide, Giulio, is an official Italian Hiking Guide. He spent 7 years in London gaining his degree and working practice. He has many years experience organising and leading successful tours to various countries within Europe.

Giulio is a natural leader and excellent naturalist – endowed with sensitivity and personal warmth. He is exceptionally accomplished and very enthusiastic to share his knowledge and skills with us.

On our Lofoten Walking Holiday, Giulio is our Guide and Chef. Being Italian he loves food, and we benefit from his culture of great tasting cuisine blended with Norway’s healthy, natural produce, this creates a delicious fusion of 'Viking meets Roman'. Like all great Chefs, Giulio prepares our evening meals with passion!


John Sidgwick:  Cotswold Local Guide.

John has lived in The Cotswolds for some 27 years and has a keen interest in all things local. He has gained an immense store of knowledge that he imparts with an infectious enthusiasm. His 'all round' interest in many diverse subjects, together with a wicked sense of humour, makes John an ideal local guide and walking companion.

John is one of Martin's dearest friends, having both met in the wonderful and heady days of surfing in Cornwall, back in 1970! John and Martin have led many holidays together in The Cotswolds and in Morocco.
